If I Voted for Emmys...

I've been predicting awards since I started watching movies and TV-Shows. This is not less enjoyable than films itself, actually it's more challenging. But predictions is mostly about guessing who academy members will honor - who they will love or hate. However, being a voter yourself is more fun - giving votes to those, which you think is the best. Today I've voted for Gold Derby TV Awards, which is independent voting system and award for Gold Derby users.

Whom would you vote, if you were an academy member?


  1. Seems like we have fairly similar taste in TV. Gonna be posting my own dream Emmy ballot later this month.

  2. Good to hear it. I'd love to see your list. I wonder how close our wishlist will be to the real nominees.

  3. Great to see Fairley here, but why Dinklage over Waldau?

  4. That is a tough choice. If you look at my predictions, I think both of them will get in the final 6. But this is totally personal choice :)
